To reduce our reliance on current systems. To foster adaptability, imagination, reason, and community as we explore other ways of living. To have fun and to create our own meaning.
We’re in the exploration stage and we’re looking for others who are interested in exploring the possibilities with us.
The vision is a community made up of people who are interested in replacing exploitative relations (whether ecological, economic, or social) with regenerative relations. Together we can learn new skills (or old skills). We can experiment individually and collectively. We can keep what works and discard the rest.
Generally we favor pragmatism over purity, advancement over inertia, and flexibility over dogma. The question isn’t “are my practices correct?” but “am I empowering myself and others to discover and embrace better practices?”
We also value autonomy. Enthusiasm, inquiry, and joy can be choked by excess rules and meetings. Finding community isn’t an act of consumption where we buy a lot tied to the “right” set of governance procedures or to a management committee set up by a developer that runs paradise for us. Whether, when, and how communal arrangements work best is context dependent. Better to do the work of organically creating our own community than trying to summon one into being with the proper legal incantations.
Let’s talk. And, maybe, let’s buy our plot of land (not necessarily stateside) and get started.
